Your next boat?

As of press time, with 6 days and 2 hours left to bid, you can buy Stars and Stripes for a small bid of $62,200. Of course, the reserve hasn't been met and as far as I can remember, this particular boat has never won the America's Cup, but in some ways it's a bit of history.

Most of the buyer's questions are probably coming from Sailing Anarchy such as "does the outhouse come with it", "what's it's PHRF rating", etc.

Honestly, I think this barge could do well in the Berkeley Beer Can races; it's likely marginally faster than the Merit 25 and J/105 I've raced on. But probably couldn't keep up with Polka Dot...you might remember I actually hit SEVEN knots last weekend.
